Today is Thursday 20.

Tomorrow is 21. The last day of school holidays.

Monday 24 is the first day back at school.

Tuesday 25 is ANZAC Day (public holiday)

The first day back at school is usually always a "pupil free day". Even if it is not a pupil free day, no parent is going to send their kids to school on Monday, just to have Tuesday off.

Wednesday, will be the first day in 3 years that ticks all the boxes for me to take the camper to the river and do an over nighter and catch me a Murray Cod...No flood waters, no fires, no rain, no snakes AND no kids !!....And you give me 2 stars. First day in 3 years that ticks all the boxes and you give me 2 stars ?? Then, just to ice the cake, you expect me to get up at 3 O"CLOCK in the morning !!!

If I catch a cod and post the pics, I will expect lots of likes and shares...or there will be further complaints !!

Hahaha...Unbelievable, several days of 4 stars and the planned day - 2 stars. hahaha

I'd like to complain also. on the few possible days the weather lets up enough to allow fishing, this site has only given me one and two star days.

It's a conspiracy. Next they'll be telling us this site is safe and effective. Pffft

Good luck for the 3am mission all the same.

The world's a better place after a paddle.

Don't blame FR, blame the FISH!!!
We are only the messengers, haha

The fish must be up to something if they are only biting hard during the school holidays and shitty weather.
Maybe they figured out that serious anglers usually avoid those times.
Almost seems like they don't want to be caught

First day in 3 years to have all the boxes ticked...and you give it 2 stars !!! Then you claim innocence...

The lion is watching...I wonder if Adam is watching. I bet he is not - But he should be !!

Mission Aborted...

For all of you eagerly awaiting pics of Murray Cod...Todays maiden voyage of the new home made camper is cancelled.

Sorry to disappoint everyone.

The 2 stars was just the beginning. I noticed a few logistical issues. No biggies. Just meant about a 3 hour delay for launch...But then they said rain expected for tonight or tomorrow morning...This trip was to be a shake down test run of the new set up and I just don't want to do that if it is raining....Yes, I know "fair weather fisherman" - sticks and stones, call me names if you like, but I am not going !!

This is it. I put a roof top tent on my little trailer. All up I have put very close to $10,000 AUS into this project. Apart from toilet, it is fully self contained. 60 liter water (you can see the brass tap just in front of the wheel arch). Inflatable boat (kayak). Solar input (but it can go at least a week without recharging). 200lt of sealed weather proof storage - plus car, roof racks and non-weather sealed etc.

The trailer is Australian made Trailers2000 poly (plastic). It has rubber bush suspension which means no springs. So it can go into shrubby off road rough places. The tent is Dune4WD by Anaconda. Aluminium honeycomb shell, so can take some knocks through the bush. Oh, and it is canvas of course.

Still a few more things to do. A rod tube is next. I was going to just use a hand line for this trip. Then a bat (fox) wing awning. Can't decide to go with a 180 or 270.

Anyway, The couple of minor logistic issues are now sorted. Since this is just a shake down trip, I am thinking a 2 nighter at Greens Lake. No cod but there but plenty of carp...Or, see what this rain does, the river might still be a goer.

Woohoo! A nice setup!! Head to the bush right away! You can do your doo in the bush secretly! AU is a vast country are not polluting too much with your XXX

Thanks Dazz.

The loo is not an issue

Yeah, I am pretty happy with the set up. I don't think I have forgotten anything. But I will find out when I get out in the bush and say "damn I forgot that" haha.

I was planning on going today. But again I had to postpone... Long story.

I have to check the weather and might go tomorrow. The spot I am going to is 2WD in but even slight rain is 4WD out. I don't know if I can get out with the trailer on if it rains. But I have a long snatch strap so I could pull the trailer up.

Did you see that cold front that came across? Well, I didn't go to Greens Lake. I had ice on the car a few days ago. But we are back to chilly morns, warm days and cool nights...AND NO MORE SNAKES till spring !!

It's cold here in Auckland this morning but we have nice sun today! Thank god!
I let Mark go fishing all by himself. See what he can catch today.

You might be in a bush now.

Not out bush yet. I am staying home to see what happens to my friend...He is going to court tomorrow haha

I told him to get a lawyer or at least legal advice. Found out yesterday he has done neither...It is his own fault. He has left the court with no other option - 6 months jail hahaha. I reckon he will get 28 days.

So I am thinking of going along so as they are marching off to the cells, I can yell out "told ya so" !!...hahaha

OMG! Men are too busy with all the troubles

Oh! That will be boring

Hahah...Yeah and I would have nothing to do on Facebook !! haha

He is in the court house. 9:30 start. He still thinks he is going to get off. I guess the court might be able to dismiss the matter. But if they can it would be in court rules. The actual law (the Act) gives the court only one option...jail time.

itsaboat mate...Life is just a boat and then ya marry one !
itsaboat 1 year ago

No jail time !!

I have been telling him for months to plead guilty. Walk away with a good slap. But he would not have a bar of it.

Anyway, the court appointed a lawyer...Same advice as I have been giving. The lawyer insisted that he plead guilty. So he did. He is home.

I am not going into details. But I think he has finally got the message.

Sorry for your luck. I find the information on this site to be spot on. I've used this data for years now and in my estimation it's 90- 95% correct; just saying...
